Poet's Notes about The Poem

Poetry form: Mobius

Mobius poems have six or more lines that alternate:

statement line (your love defies my reason)
list line (sincere, joyful, reaching, tomorrow)
statement line
list line

The name Mobius Poem derives from the ability to read the verse continually in circular fashion; when one reaches the last word and returns to the first line, the verse flows to begin again in poetic, logical sense. Words in list lines should relate to the previous and following statement lines so the poem reads smoothly.

Each list line must end in a 'time' word (day, night, eternity, hour, etc.) . That time word should be italicized.

The last word of the final line, whether list or statement line, should be a noun that refers to the poem's title and flows back into the poem's first line.

Mobius poems are best presented in a centered format AND in lower case.(Regrettably it is not possible to display it here centered on page.)
